Genting SP: An orderly retreat.

Thursday, September 30, 2010

No one likes to see his investment plunging in value but anyone who bought some Genting SP's shares towards the end of its run up to $2.18 could be nursing a huge paper loss now, if he did not cut his losses.

On 28 Sep, I mentioned that "we could see more selling pressure in the near term.  If $1.93 gives way, I see the next support level at $1.84, give or take a cent. Strong support should be provided by the rising 50dMA which is currently at $1.60." Today, price action formed a low at $1.85, just a cent shy of $1.84, before closing at $1.86.  That >5m shares were sold down at $1.86 post closing at 5.05pm suggests more downside to come.

The momentum oscillators are firmly downward moving and the OBV shows clear distribution underway.  It would seem that the 50dMA would be called upon as support in due course. What price would that be at?  If I were to hazard a guess, it could be close to $1.70 next week.  That is where we find the lower Bollinger band and it also seems like a natural candlestick support.  Of course, a nice round number is mostly psychologically important.

Do I expect any panic selling? That's a tough one to answer but looking at the volume of trade as the stock was sold down this week, it looks like an orderly retreat to me.  No spike in trade volume.  So, this is perhaps a consolation for shareholders.
